Question about IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 Notebook
My ibm a21m keeps shutting down at various times, sometimes when loading o/s, sometimes when iam in windows working with apps. replaced hard drive and when i was loading o/s it shut down.
You had any beeps from system BEFORE it shuts down? These can be indicators of the type of errors. BEEP CODES.
I had a similar prob with my desktop pc but it beeped and would then shut down. I opened up the case and put some of the thermal paste on top of the processor. I then replaced the heatsink and fan and gave me no more probs.

You may also find that the cooling fan is not working any more. This has been known to happen and sometimes, unfortunately, it is not the fan, but the motherboard. Happened to me and I bought a replacement fan on Ebay and found the problem still existed. I then bought a replacement motherboard on Ebay and now everything is ok
Good Luck and I hope it is something simple like a stuffed fan or blocked ventilation

Have you checked the ventilation area of the processor if it is blocked by dirt? It causes heat to processor, when it reaches a certain hot temperature, it automatically turns off to avoid further damage. Have it opened and be cleaned by a computer tech
